John Daniel is dead
Former Democratic Labour Party (DLP) stalwart and insurance executive John Daniel is dead.
Daniel, who turned 79 on December 16 and was said to be ailing for the last five months, died on Thursday, less than a year after renewing marriage vows with wife Elaine at his beloved St Leonard’s Anglican Church.
DLP general secretary George Pilgrim today recalled him being a stickler for the rules of the party’s constitution, while fellow stalwart Keith Simmons remembered him as a long-serving member of the ruling party, and a three-time candidate for the Christ Church West constituency (1981, 1986, 1991) and in 1994 for St George South.
Daniel, a retired insurance executive, leaves to mourn his wife Elaine who described him as “a disciplinarian who would never settle for medicority”, daughter Joel Peart and sons John Jr., Stephen, Sean, Dale and Troy. (RJ)
